Yamaha Custom Bike

Marco Yaya from Redmond, Washington is a car guy that I met at a classic car event. As all car guys we tend to fiddle with all things powered by combustion engines and Marco is not an exception. This full custom is his latest creation. If I had to pigeonhole this ride it would probably be a cross between a bobber and a board track bike.

Mixing different styles can be a treacherous area but Marco pulled it off. Regardless, we dig the all business style of course.


Marco is now working on some old school Benellis that will get the custom treatment. We can’t wait to see what he will come up with.
